Operating nationwide offering construction cost and contract advice
"We used Mark to help us understand the potential costs of a major renovation project before putting in an offer to buy it. With only limited plans to work from, Mark really helped us to understand the scope for costs to creep up because the property was Grade 2 listed and because of complexities of the site – like the slope and drainage requirements. We would recommend Mark as a pragmatic, knowledgeable and helpful professional. Without his help, we could have made some really expensive bad decisions"
Dominic Walley and Geraldine Nosowska (Devon)
Is your project viable, want to set a realistic budget? Commission us to prepare you a feasibility cost report, prepared by a Chartered professional and suitable for presentation to a bank/funder if required.
Whether you are a private individual looking to extend your home or a business looking for commercial advice.
We will work off whatever level of drawings or sketches you have, or even just an initial idea.
We work for contractors and builders throughout the UK preparing tender submissions and estimates. We price everything from house extensions to formal tenders on larger commercial works, generally up to around £2m in value. All work is backed up in detail, so you understand the breakdown to the rates, overhead and profit and labour time calculations. You will also receive a price breakdown and covering letter to issue as your tender, complete with relevant qualifications and exclusions.
We offer clients a significant discount for pricing regular work.
Are you a small builder and receiving numerous enquiries that you are struggling to prioritise? Are you wasting time with detailed quotes that don't lead anywhere? Do you need to establish the genuine clients before you spend time and money preparing a formal quote? We can quickly work out the approximate build cost and produce a simple one page professional letter that you can send out as an Estimate Only, giving an initial guide build price and a description of the work.
Don't make the mistake of just sending out drawings with your tender - be able to compare quotations like for like and have clarity on what is priced for.
Even on small residential projects this can save time and money and form part of your building contract - giving clarity on what is included in your builders quotation.
We can also draft out a suitable JCT or NEC building contract.
We will quantify your design in a Bill of Quantities to whatever detail you require. Standard industry SMM7 or New Rules of Measurement (suitable for tendering) provided or alternatively bespoke measures or approximate quantities. We charge from £250 for a basic quantified Schedule of Materials.
We don't just operate in the residential sector and can provide advice on commercial developments in sectors such as industrial, retail, leisure, education, and the like, whether you are a commercial business, contractor or subcontractor.
If you require ongoing assistance for your project during the site phase, in managing costs, undertaking site valuations, agreeing the final account, plus advising on contractual matters, then we can offer this service. See link below to see our current projects.
We can carry out rebuild estimates for your building, so you have a value to insure against in the event of damage to your property.
We can offer a professionally qualified surveyor who has experience of advising local authorities on the appropriate insurance values for their property assets.
Contact us today for a quotation.
Why not employ a surveyor who has many years experience preparing and assessing PQQ's and Quality Assessment Questions?
It is now a requirement for many public bodies and local authorities to assess tenders on quality as well as price.
We can assist in either preparing or completing such quality assessments.
